President Hassan Sh. Mohamud Policy of seeking allies of any political background to resist voluntary formation of federated states and his attempt to shape Somalia from Mogadishu perspective only without allowing inputs from residents in the regions, risks escalation of renewed hostilities and dangerous conflagration to finish off what is still left of Somalia as we know it. He is better advised to listen, arbitrate and seek consensus among his people before it becomes too late as an odd man. Has the Prime Minister Shirdon got what it takes to come out of the shadow and claim rightfully his role in history?
